Mass media & Internet
Also heralded as Fourth Estate, mass media have power to influence people through authoritative information flow.
In the recent years, Internet has come up as the fastest spreading medium to revolutionize the human history because, unlike others, it's interactive.
It is noteworthy that it took 30 years for radio to reach 50 million people and 13 years for television. But it took just five years for the Internet to reach 100 million people!
So, the power of Internet can't be ignored for social change.
